Posts Tagged ‘October’

We had a great little segue into fall … with leaves slowly turning color, and another somewhat balmy Halloween night.  Even though it was a school night – kids were out in droves collecting candy on our street.  Bye for now October… it’s been a LOT of fun.

I’m not necessarily ready for cooler weather but clearly Zoe is: she likes to ice skate with her classmate Lily lately.  Since Lily takes skating lessons, I just let her tie on Zoe’s skates and teach her the ropes – and I basically stand around waiting to be useful .

We are already seeing signs of “Halloween night preparation” in our ‘hood – and I found this crazy old pix of me and my brothers in our home-made costumes in the ’70s.  I wonder if this will inspire my own kids’ ideas for costumes this year?

I hear that Lily gets up at 5 a.m. for skate lessons so .. I’m unnecessary here

I feel like last October we ran amok with wayyyyy too many pumpkin outings. This fall we are wrangling with a beast of a house renovation and tons of packing so this may be one of the very few pumpkin posts for this year. Let’s see how it all goes with getting out of Home Depot and into the fall foliage this month. Meanwhile here are some shots of our trip back to Hank’s, where we at least got a taste of the season (and some pumpkin and apple-cider donuts – yum!)

This long Columbus Day weekend we had a fun time showing cousins Tali and Jake around town… starting with Times Square and the giant Toys R Us with ferris wheel inside. And of course the subway rides are always entertaining.
How was your weekend?
